Opening 'QOQNOOS - You Can Burn Woman Made Of Fire'
Woensdag 8 maart 2023
On March 8, 2023 my photo series MHD SKATE 1401 - LIFE GOES ON (June, 2022) premiered during the group exhibition 'Qoqnoos - You Can't Burn Woman Made Of Fire' curated by @tinafarifteh.
About 10 months ago I captured magical energy of the skating youth of my city Mashhad/Iran during 'International Go Skateboarding Day 2022'. I am thankful that I had the privilege to meet every single soul… This series reminds me why photography and capturing a time document is so special and important. Their passion and delight for the skatesport needed to be captured and must been seen by the world.
